Video: Mary Berry talks Bake Off series 5

Bake Off judge Mary talks the move to BBC1 and the nation's love for all things baked

When Mary Berry arrived at Radio Times’ annual covers party, we couldn’t help tracking her down to talk all things Bake Off. I mean, who could pass up the chance to converse with the queen of cake? 


First up, she told us that an impressive 13,000 people had already applied for the next series of the amateur cooking competition before telling us how much she was looking forward to getting back inside the GBBO tent. 

And with the hugely successful show bidding BBC2 a fond farewell and heading over to BBC1 this year, we naturally had to enquire as to whether the show was going to get a revamp. But lovely Mary was keen to reassure us, saying: “I promise you that nothing is going to be changed… it’s part of its charm to stay how it is.”

Phew. Glad we cleared that one up!
